    Five years today “June 25, 2013” I had my LVAD placed. It is a HeartWare and I have never had any problems at all. Very lucky on that point. Doctors that I have at the University of Washington Regional Heart Center are doing a wonderful job keeping me going.

    In September, 2015. I had two (no pain) heart attacks, one while in the hospital. My cardiologist (he had put two stents in me some years earlier) told me that my left ventricle was in bad shape and that I might not live to the end of the year.

    My Dad had his LVAD put in on 5/25/17. He seems to have had a new issue every, single, day, of his recovery so far. Hours after the surgery, they said he had bleeding in his chest and had to take him back and open him up a second time (then couldn't find the cause!).
